It is quite common now a days that most of the company looks for fresher with at least 6 months of experience in the relevant field for which they want to hire you.

To get the experience there are online courses where you can learn and explore something which is beyond academics, which and all will be paid once and by end of internship or training you will be given a certificate which you can use during the placements.

However, most of the colleges and universities already identified the need of experience that company is looking for and allowing their students for 3-6 months of internship during the academic period. It will be much useful if you can utilise this facility.

I also recommend platforms like Internshala for doing online internships, summer internships choose wisely what exactly you are looking for and it will definitely help you to get learn and explore along with the certificate.

Happy learning!!!

There is a misconception that recruiters are looking for experience people. It was the case before, but now the scenario is different. They are looking for the right talent and commitment. Yes, Internships count as experience but if you don't have, don't worry. ?  

Solutions if you don't have internships and relevant experience to put on CV, do these things:

Do projects which are unique and consist of multiple technologies. Document it in a proper form as to explain it in the interview and host it to show your work.

 Try Solving coding competitions as much as possible and sites like hacker earth is offering the same. The companies assign you problems and based on the score they call for interview. 

Be ready to complete small tasks like api clone, small 3-4 page website etc. These are some of the tasks recruiter will give you to check your skills.  

So while studying if you are looking for internship look for small scale companies as the chance of getting selected is much more. They test on the basis of your theory skills. Make your resume and cover letter as per their requirement and showcase your skills.

A fresh graduate who does not have professional experience is not expected to put experience in their resume. However, there are some valid cases -

Part Time Work Experience: If you've done a job part-time while you were studying, you should mention it in the resume

Freelance: If you freelanced - do mention it in the resume and I'm sure it will have just as much weightage as professional experience. However, you need to demonstrate that you actually worked on something worthy of mentioning. 

Business: If you worked on a business, started a business or just helped someone with business; do mention it. Don't fake it, though. This is important.

Internship: If you interned with any company - and have a certificate of Internship; do mention it. Any kind of professional work is respected by the employers. 

Your Work Portfolio: I believe this trumps everything else. If you have a solid portfolio of side-projects that you worked on it will add lot of weightage to your resume. If you are a coder, you could demonstrate your expertise by mentioning your GITHUB / GITLAB or any other repository that the employers can access.

As we know that a fresher has very ample amount of experience. The only way to mention your experience in cv will be in terms of  internships. 

Internship plays major role how one is able to deal with real time implementation on hands on projects, this indirectly showcases one talent to solve the problem.

  1.  As a fresher doesn't have any industrial experience. So working in industry they required some experience before hiring fresher.So the candidate can either mention some internship or have  any part time work experience or even can mention their projects detail in resume. The major project that is done in final year is very important one  lots of questions can be from your projects itself. As you don't have experience so they only select you on the basis of projects that you have done in four year of engineering.

For the fresher candidate experience takes the  important role but the recruiters mostly concentrate on your educational details, relevant coursework, project details, achievements in college, leadership activities, and relevant skills. you can  show your experience in relevant technology by doing internship program or by showing the freelancing project experience.The final year project is also very important and most of the question regarding technology will asked on your final year project.

Hi,

As a fresher and experienced professional you can call it anything CV OR RESUME. it means the same thing.

one should write all the details that demonstrate your potential to perform! for instance you ,must focus on your strengths/skills and also mention your  achievements under those skills to substantiate those strengths.

you may also want to write the details of your internships/projects and focus more on your contributios other than the project details.

hope it helps!

good luck!

As a fresher you don't need any experience,that what fresher are know for but you can show some internship for like 2-6 month and if you have done some freelancing or some small project that could be good. Even it is related or non related to the current job profile you can still show part-time job experience in it.

Internships could not be the sole source of internship especially in the present day. I believe there exists a myriad of opportunities that one can explore to get the necessary experience while continuing with the studies. I would suggest part time jobs, freelance CAD designer for small projects, apprenticeship programs. 

Interestingly, one can venture into research works and come up with project proposals and collaborate with institutions or sponsors in its implementations and if successful it really gets you at good trajectory and add a lining to your resume. Also consider volunteer engagements and arrangements that agrees with your career path and/ or hobbies..
